Inter have told Chelsea that they have no intention of sending any players the other way as part of a deal to sign Romelu Lukaku on loan.

This according to today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, who report that the Nerazzurri have made clear to the Blues that they only want to sell players for cash.

Talks are well underway to try and make a return to Inter for Lukaku happen, but it would still be tough given how highly the Blues value the Belgian compared to what the Nerazzurri are able to spend.

The Blues have been exploring the possibility of taking a player either on loan or signing on a permanent basis to meet their valuation of a loan of the 29-year-old, but the Nerazzurri have no interest in this.

Inter have made clear that if they are to let a high-value player go this summer then they will cash in on them, as they need to bring in transfer fees to meet financial goals for the transfer window.

As such, Inter are again moving forward trying to discuss the possibility of a paid loan for Lukaku, and while they are not able to meet the Blues’ demands of a €25-30 million loan fee, they are ready to raise their offer.
